What can and cannot be done depends on how your contract was written. Interpretation of the contract terms and advice on how to proceed should come from a local real estate attorney as we agents cannot give legal advice. I hope things work out to your satisfaction. ... more

Ryan Desch answered:
Sold data is typically protected information, held by local MLS's, brokers, and boards. Without the help of those resources, finding sold data is extremely difficult, you will not find it online. You can always call a local agent to research a given area, depending on what you're trying to do, like get a valuation on your own home. ... more

They do not, if you want your home to appear here you will need to find a licensed professional to work with.

You will not be able to list your home here if you are selling it yourself, only licensed agents can list homes for sale on Trulia

I know here in CT at least there is a bit of a "lag" from when something is changed in MLS to the time it reflects on Trulia and similar sites. I would give it a few couple days the longest I have seen it take is 5 days.

Good Luck!

Not understanding what you mean by "I add my home". If the property appears sold, it may be referring to a previous sale, please double check the date.

I am curious if you sold this property. I have a buyer that might be interested if it has acreage.

Tim is right. Unfortunately Trulia unlike Zillow does not allow an individual home owner to list their home for sell.

Most Realtors haven't figured out that homes sell/rent so much faster with professional photos. It is not expensive at all to have photos taken and I suspect that most agents are just lazy or too broke to spend the money. ... more

Hi Justin,

Regardless of third party authorization, the offer should come to you first. Period. The third party authorization is for your Realtor or attorney to discuss paperwork to be submitted on your behalf for the shortsale. Your agent should not be submitting anything without your approval or knowledge,

Something sounds fishy to me if the Realtor is submitting an offer behind your back on your behalf.
I would demand that she bring that offer to your attention immediately.

Although you own the house on paper, the bank will be making the decision on whether or not to accept what is presented. I would say present no matter what offer comes in to get the ball rolling with the bank, but if you have no idea of the offer, still sounds fishy.

There are a whole host of problems with this. Address the offer first with your Realtor, see if that Realtor is also the selling agent... at that point, who is buying it?

There is no doubt there is more money in a Bedroom than in the Laundry Room, when it comes to return on investment... The real question would depend on what is common in your neighborhood. Personally I didn't mind having the laundry room located outside in the carport, when I purchased my home. But this was common in my neighborhood. The difference between sales price for an indoor laundry room vs the carport was minimal in my case. If your home is currently on the market, just gage the responses of those you have shown the home too. If you listen to their feedback, they will tell you what you need to do - or not do - every time. ... more

Hi, Janet,

I know this question is a few weeks old, but I thought I'd answer it for you. The county record shows the property to be 2.89 acres. The issue will need to be addressed with the assessors office to make that change. You might take your current survey and deed there, and clarify the oversight if there is one. Best of luck. Here is the county record: ... more

no, most companies only get paid when they sell your property. Yes some may charge upfront so shop around. Chose the best not just the biggest

Annette Lawrence answered:
Of course you can.
Have a chat with your REALTOR and follow the instruction provided.
Most certainly you will need to sign the cancellation documents and make any provision stated in the cancellation clause.

Hopefully, your husband is returning to Florida with a big raise!
Hmmm, maybe you need a bigger house now!
Just kidding.

Best of success,

Undeveloped lots can take a long time to sell. However, ensuring that photos are used in your advertising & describing the area in detail may spark more interest. You can also use satellite imagery from google maps to show topography. Some developers in Arkansas are offering short term owner financing to also spur sales. Many agents forget that land must have as many images as improved property. Land typically does take the longest time to sell. Best wishes! ... more
